About Dudley Lodge

Dudley Lodge is a UK registered charity and one of the leading Family Assessment Centres in England and Wales. At Dudley Lodge, our focus is to keep families together when it is safe and in the best interest of the child to do so. We assess all types of families from couples to single mothers and fathers of all ages and abilities.

When a family arrives at Dudley Lodge we put together an assessment to suit the need of each individual in order to assess their parenting skills and ability to safely care for their child.

We understand that each family is different and certain things may need adapting in order to achieve the most successful assessment possible.

We have two assessment centres, one in Birmingham, and one in Coventry but we work with families from all over the UK. We are Ofsted regulated and achieved ‘Outstanding’ status for our centre in Coventry, and ‘Good’ for our centre in Birmingham.

Dudley Lodge Values

- We believe that all children have the right to have their safety and welfare needs met.

- We believe that all adults have a responsibility to respond to concerns, worries and doubts regarding the safety and wellbeing of children wherever they may be.

- We believe that it is people who make the difference in any enterprise, and to give their best they must be treated with dignity and respect.
